According to data provided by OnChainCollege, the largest Canadian Bitcoin ETF has increased its Bitcoin holdings by 31%. The total number of coins held by the institution increased to approximately 32,329 BTC.
The total number of BTC purchased by ETF since November remains at approximately 32,329 BTC. Such a large buying volume was most likely followed by the accumulation initiated by large wallets. After every Bitcoin dip, the on-chain activity suggested that large buying power appeared on the market despite the negative price action.
Orders were most likely placed in advance to allow the chance to receive Bitcoin at a significant discount as it quite often bounces after every volatile movement.
